San Jose Collaborative Divorce Attorney
Settling Your Divorce Outside of Court
The Dominion Law Group, LLP in San Jose, California, provides collaborative law services as an alternative to the time, expense, and painful nature of divorce litigation.
With collaborative divorce, you are more likely to be satisfied with the outcome of your divorce because you will be directly involved in the negotiations. Most divorce-related issues can be resolved through the collaborative law technique:
What Is Collaborative Law?
Collaborative law is a powerful and effective way to resolve differences and reach fair solutions through the use of highly trained and skilled professionals, while avoiding the cost and uncertainty of litigation. At the beginning of the collaborative law process, both parties agree to:
- Resolve their disputes outside of court
- Cooperate by exchanging all information they have regarding the financial circumstances of the parties
- Negotiate in good faith in an effort to find a solution that works for everyone -- both parties, and their children
- Treat each other with respect
Collaborative law is about achieving a fair and equitable settlement and accomplishing the thoughtful restructuring of the family.
How the Collaborative Process Works
In a collaborative divorce, you will work with a team of experts who will help you engage in a meaningful dialogue directed toward the identification and resolution of various legal issues. The individuals who will work with you will vary based upon your family's individual needs. Both parties will have their own attorneys who will provide them with full legal protection and advocacy.
Other professionals such as psychological counselors and a financial consultant can help achieve a workable and fair conclusion to the marriage.
Through a series of multi-party meetings, the participants identify issues, explore options, and work toward an agreement that satisfies both parties. This type of negotiation allows both sides to win ("win-win" negotiation as opposed to the "win-lose" litigation model).
Lower Cost, Less Stress: The Benefits of Collaborative Law
Costs will vary depending upon the difficulty of the matter, but one thing is certain: no funds will be spent on waging war. In collaborative family law, parties are assured of getting the assistance they need to succeed, while avoiding costs associated with nonproductive fighting. The dollars spent on the collaborative law process are a wise investment in a better future for the parties and for their children.
